Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic treatments performed in the United States. It is a convenient option for the long-term reduction of hair follicles on the body and face. This procedure frequently leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and produces long-lasting results compared to other options. Our skilled laser technician at Novo Med Spa in Frisco, TX performs safe and fast laser hair removal treatments for women and men in frequently needed areas including the legs, back, arms, face, chest, armpits, and intimate areas. Our practice uses Cutera’s xeo machine with the Nd:YAG handpiece for darker skin tones and the ProWave handpiece for all other skin types. Call our office for a consult today.
Laser hair removal is a gentle process that is suitable for most patients. In your consultation, you will talk about your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other hair removal methods (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in overall, good health
At your laser hair removal appointment, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as areas are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and moisturizers. During laser hair removal, our seasoned laser technician will stretch out the skin being treated to provide a direct path between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The laser’s energy will target and disable the hair follicle, which stops it from growing back. Usually, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to reach the active growth phase so they can be treated. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Novo Med Spa is able to target the hair follicle alone to preserve the skin in the areas being treated.
While the treatment is relatively gentle in nature, the treated areas of your skin may feel like it has a light sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after a appointment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or the use of ice packs to treat any discomfort.
